WSU Gender Equity Work Group

The WSU Gender Equity Work Group was established in February 2016. The group was formed as a joint affiliation of the WSU President’s Commission on the Status of Women (COSW), the WSU Women in Medicine and Science (WIMS) and the American Association of University Professors-AFT Local 6075 (AAUP-AFT). Membership now comprises individuals from numerous departments, schools, and colleges across campus.  The Work Group’s initial mission was to continue research, initiated by the COSW in 2014, that examined pay equity at Wayne State.  That mission has grown to include current projects and research focused on lactation rooms, childcare, and parental leave.  

We welcome all employees, students and alumni who are interested in gender equity at Wayne State to join us in our mission.
